Assalamu Alaikum,

Sorry if you thought this was going to be the latest review of Monty Python's movie (Embarrassed)... but...

I was just reflecting on the following verse from the Holy Qur'an, where Allah SWT Gives us a whole summary of 'Life' in one verse, including implications in the Afterlife depending on our choices in this life:

Qur'an [57:20]

Chapter (57) sūrat l-ḥadīd (The Iron)

Sahih International: Know that the life of this world is but amusement and diversion and adornment and boasting to one another and competition in increase of wealth and children - like the example of a rain whose [resulting] plant growth pleases the tillers; then it dries and you see it turned yellow; then it becomes [scattered] debris. And in the Hereafter is severe punishment and forgiveness from Allah and approval. And what is the worldly life except the enjoyment of delusion.

And then I came across the following Youtube video, full of life questions, that I thought I would share:

Hmmm... Food for thought?
